West Nile Virus “Outbreak” Justifies Spraying Toxic Chemicals onto Citizens

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that the cases of West Nile virus (WNV) are raising to the point of having the largest outbreak ever seen in the domestic US. In total, the CDC is reporting 1,118 cases with 41 deaths attributed.
Yet the CDC claims that most bitten by an infected mosquito do not come down with WNV. It appears the governmental agency fear-mongers and downplays the threat in the same breath.
Dr. Lyle Petersen, the director of the CDC’s Vector-Borne Infectious Disease Division confirmed:
The peak of West Nile virus epidemics usually occur in mid-August, but it takes a couple of weeks for people to get sick, go to the doctor and get reported. Thus we expect many more cases to occur.
The Connecticut Mosquito Management Program asserts that because the mosquitos carrying WNV are one an estimated 1 in 500 which would point the attribution of the infected to another source.
The areas of the country where the most cases have been reported are Texas, South Dakota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Michigan. Petersen believes that “we think the reported numbers will get higher through October.”
